August 31, 2009Vintage House Beautiful – Photographer Maynard Parker’s Collection Available Online
I got a great email yesterday from Tom’s mom. It seems her Aunt Pat had forwarded some information for me about Maynard Parker’s photography collection of mid-century and post-war houses being available online through the Huntington Library. There is even a video and everything. Holy Cow, let me tell you that about three images into it, I was hooked!
Most of you will recognize his work, since he was a photographer for House Beautiful during the post-war and mid-century period. In fact, some of his images were in this great Kitchen Slideshow House Beautiful had out a couple months ago.
The images in the Huntington Library are fantastic, so head over to the collection and check it out. Be warned, though, there are over 6,000 images to browse through, so consider this to be another major time waster.
Thanks, Aunt Pat! 🙂
